Survivor: Island of the Idols - October 16 Blog Party


Greetings and felicitations! As tonight's show airs, barring possible power outages due to a nasty nor'easter type storm outside, I'll be doing my best to live blog the show as it airs here on the East Coast. You'll have to bear with me as I'm still having trouble with some of the names of castaways. Perhaps a bit less Rob/Sandra time and more current cast time would help in that regard. Refresh this page to get the latest updates. And, if I vanish, I've lost power.

Here's the latest blog pool update from the esteemed Lifeguard Laure:
Lairo
Aaron Meredith - Auntie Leigh
Chelsea Walker - Big winner Brian, Margo
Dean Kowalski - CherryPie, Merrilee
Elaine Stott - Cheryl in NC
Elizabeth Beisel - CherylNY, monty 924
Karishma Patel - Ed in Ohio, SueGee
Missy Byrd - Janice, TS14Fan
Tom Laidlaw - Judi Sweeney, Laurie

Vokai
Dan Spilo - Bizaro22, marthalight
Jack Nichting - David, jennifer
Jamal Shipman - Donna in Alabama, Petals
Janet Carbin - Donna NY, Sharon C
Jason Linden - Dr_Celine, Nickelpeed
Kellee Kim - Glenn Allen, Indiana Jane
Lauren Beck - Jackie, Sharon N
Noura Salman - Jennasmom


As always, the real party is in the comments! Survivor fans ready?

Again no real intro? Right to the action. Karishma thinks she must be expendable because she got three votes. Uh-oh … Dean and Chelsea seem to be becoming a power couple. That could throw the target on them! The women's alliance could suffer … that is unless they get rid of Dean. Hmm.

The other tribe wants to go fishing. Jamal, worried about being left out of the last vote, thinks he needs to go looking for an idol. And, he finds it. Are they making them too easily to be found? Jamal has a Richard Hatch laugh.

A boat arrives and they must make a unanimous decision who goes to Island of the Idols. If not unanimous, they need to draw from a bag. What a quandary, huh? Noura volunteers to go and meets up with Rob and Sandra.

They give her watermelon. It's like BB all over again! Her lesson is in the art of persuasion. Poor Erik … they show him giving his immunity and getting voted out once again. Rob tells her that in the next immunity challenge she should convince them she needs to be the caller and, if she succeeds she wins the power to block someone's vote. If she doesn't succeed, she loses her vote. Neither Rob nor Sandra are too keen about Noura's talents in playing the game.

Noura tells her tribemates that they have an advantage in the next immunity challenge if they unanimously agree she can choose her role. She tells them she will be the caller. Jason is skeptical and they're all thinking she's lying. They practice and it's not going well. 

Immunity Challenge time. We'll see who calls. Course, collect three keys, solve puzzle all while blindfolded. Heh. Her tribe sat Noura out. She won't call nor even compete. Jason and Elizabeth are the callers.

Jason has brought his tribe to a big lead with his calling abilities, don't think Noura could have done as well. Elizabeth has caught her team up with them. 

VOKAI wins Immunity!

Karishma is sure she's the target and is on the "woe is me" train. Chelsea feels secure because she has an idol. However, her buddy Dean is in the spotlight. Elizabeth doesn't think getting Dean out is good for her game. Aaron keeps pushing his Dean Out agenda. That seems to be casting some suspicion on him. Missy now is pushing Chelsea. Elaine is befuddled. 

Time for Tribal Council and Jeff's Probsting questions. He starts with asking them about the previous blindsides. Elaine remains befuddled. Chelsea talks about how everything can change. I hope she watches for signs and doesn't leave with an idol in hand. Ohh … Missy disses Karishma. Dang. This whole TC is about blindsides.

The tally -- Chelsea does not play her idol.

Karishma, Karishma, Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea. Chelsea

Another out carrying an idol. Silly castaways!

Next week looks like the merge or a shuffle. They will be dropping their buffs!

Hi everyone who follows.

Petals said...

~*~*~*~ SPLASH ~*~*~*~

Hey everyone! Happy 15-Days-'Til-Halloween !!!

I brought pumpkin bars w/cream cheese icing!

jennifer said...

Hi Jackie, petals and Nickelpeed 🤗 and all who follow!

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Jackie and Penny and Petals and all who follow! I missed last week had 2 root canals yesterday had another Root Canal so still hurting.

Petals said...

This season has no uber-hot Insta-models, does it?

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Jennifer.

Petals said...

Glenn! Oh no! Why so many root canals? Do you have decent insurance? Those are over a grand each, not to mention the restoration...

jennifer said...

Oh Glenn, speedy healing!!

Petals said...

Jamal has real knockers, huh? LOL

tbc said...

Hi everyone!! I brought some Riesling to the party. I’m in the “flood zone” here, too. I hope my power stays on for the show. Lol

Petals said...

Moobs found an idol! He is my pool guy!

Nickelpeed said...

Why him? Darn it.

tbc said...

“Moobs”. Lol

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Glenn, Petals, tbc, and Jennifer. Hope you start feeling better, Glenn.

Petals said...

Teeb - happy Anniversary!

tbc said...

Thanks, Petals. We had a nice day

Petals said...

Glenn - don't book the restorations for 4-6 wks; the gum tissue needs to go back to normal, or the crowns won't fit properly.

I don't like the new island chick. That is the yoga chick, right? "I'll flirt and I'm intellectual"? LOL no.

tbc said...

Can we stop seeing those creepy statues.

Nickelpeed said...

I hate root canals, Glenn. I had one years ago where I could feel everything. I even had novacain.

Boy, Rob pegged her well, didn't he?

Nickelpeed said...

I agree, tbc. Those statues are very creepy.

jennifer said...

I love how Boston rob just described Noura in the caller position!!

Glenn Allen said...

Thanks Petals and Jennifer. My Medicaid is paying since its considered front teeth. My old dentist didn't treat some teeth and didn't see a new dentist about a year.

Nickelpeed said...

Since it was a volunteer situation; and they didn't draw, Kellee should have volunteered. Or could she not do so?

monty924 said...

Hi everybody...

She's nuts

Nickelpeed said...

Glenn, I have had a root canal on both front teeth. I'm glad I did.

Glenn Allen said...

Thanks Penny that is good advice about waiting.

Nickelpeed said...

She is so darn stupid. Yeesh!

Petals said...

Glenn - Cool. NO money outta your pocket.

Rinse with warm tea. The tanic acid closes the blood vessels.

jennifer said...

My bestie was in town for a visit over the weekend, she said her crown was loose and could not stop messing with it, pain followed. Long story short she got back home to the dentist and her old dentist didn’t do the crown correct and everything had to be removed, horrible infection and NO insurance 😢

jennifer said...

Noura is to loud talking

Petals said...

Noura is OBnoxious.

Is "Obnauseaous" a word? It should be a word; Noura is.

jennifer said...

She is to desperate!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Monty!

Nickelpeed said...

OMG!! She is a disaster. She is going to ruin everything. No common sense what so ever.

tbc said...

Ob-“noura” seous

monty924 said...

Rob and Sandra pegged Noura correctly

Glenn Allen said...

Petals thanks for the advice about waiting.

Jackie said...

Moobs? I guess you mean Jamal.

It's pouring here, a bit windy.

Nickelpeed said...

That is so terrible, Jennifer. Wow.

jennifer said...

The other one that had her time with rob and Sandra laughing at the tree ... hehehe

The moleman said...

Noura is not a good player give jamal credit for finding an idol well see how it plays out!

Petals said...

lol Teeb!

How is the weather now, Ms Jackie?
PS - I have a cat story: we saw a lil kitten wandering around our parking lot; we tried to lure it with tuna to grab it & make it a pet. He/She was savvy and scratched free.
But the funny part is all of us honking our horns & using our owners manuals to see how to open our hoods (we thought the kitten had run-up under one of our car hoods)

@@

Nickelpeed said...

I think it's so funny Rob figured her out in no time. She's going to be a disaster. Big time. Could be wrong, but....

monty924 said...

Oh, Noura is going to be horrible at this.

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Moleman

jennifer said...

Ha!

Petals said...

HILARIOUS!!! They made her take the bench!

monty924 said...

I guess not, LOL. No vote now, lol lol lol

Nickelpeed said...

That is so funny. They basically dislike her that much.

The moleman said...

Whats up!

Glenn Allen said...

Jennifer that is bad about your friend. Noura got played. She loses her vote. I am glad my tribe with Kelly kept Noura from calling

Ed in Ohio said...

Sorry Noura that wasn't the art of persuasion. That was just a bunch of BS. Take a seat!

jennifer said...

At least Jason and tribe had some practice, thx Noura, lol

monty924 said...

The distraction is smart

The moleman said...

Shes lucky she wasn't voted out when jamal choked in the immunity challenge!

Nickelpeed said...

This team is so stupid. They need to learn left from right and under from over. Wow.

jennifer said...

Jelly should do well!

Petals said...

a blind puzzle - interesting!

jennifer said...

*kelly

Nickelpeed said...

Maybe Jason redeemed himself now. Wonder if they'll trust him now. That is if he talks his teammate through this. We'll see.

Nickelpeed said...

Oh no. Jason....

tbc said...

It’s going to be a come from behind

Petals said...

ACK!! I can't watch, it's sooooooo close

Petals said...

are you kidding me????

monty924 said...

Wow... that was close. Love the puzzles this season.

tbc said...

Sooooo close!!

Nickelpeed said...

YES!!! Now maybe they'll treat him better.

Petals said...

WOOOOOWWWWWWWW

I really have no idea who I wanted to win, tho

jennifer said...

So close!

Nickelpeed said...

Very close tbc. Although I would have loved to have seen Noura gone.

Glenn Allen said...

My tribe is safe from immunity does that mean Noura gets her vote back since said next tribal counsil for lost vote. How long does it take for the swelling etc to go down from Root Canals?

monty924 said...

Glenn, I'm guessing it will be the next time that tribe goes to TC, so she still will have no vote then. Does that sound correct?

The moleman said...

Who should go assuming the womens alliance sticks together?

Nickelpeed said...

I'm hoping Noura isn't so angry that she tells everyone where she went. I hope she doesn't give Kellee up later on.

The moleman said...

Definitely!

Glenn Allen said...

Hi Ed!

The moleman said...

If she was playing shed either blackmail kellee or blow up her game completely but she wont do either cause shes not a good player!

Nickelpeed said...

moleman, I can't see the women's alliance staying together. I don't know if Karishma will keep it together.

Nickelpeed said...

You are right, moleman, Noura is not a good player.

Petals said...

Noura is just on to be a "character". @@

Nickelpeed said...

This team is there own worst enemy.

Petals said...

Finally! Someone taking Rob's advice!

Petals said...

Exactly Penny!! right on the money with that comment!

jennifer said...

Go with your gut Elaine!

Nickelpeed said...

What a pretty snake.

Nickelpeed said...

OMG! She just threw Elaine under the bus.

jennifer said...

I spoke to soon lol

monty924 said...

Could be Missy now

The moleman said...

They should get rid of elaine or karishma but they wont so either tom or dean what it looks like elaine is the weakest link but they need her number for now at least!

Ed in Ohio said...

Missy is playing too hard. Gonna' sink her own ship.

Nickelpeed said...

This is not good trying to get rid of the strong players. Yes Chelsea and Dean are friendly, but why in the world not get rid of the person holding the team back? Wow.

Jackie said...

I think they were told they cannot spill about the Island. In the interviews with ones already out they're not answering that question.

The moleman said...

Actually. Mabye aaron but thell get slaughtered even worse then now!

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Ed! You're right about Missy; however, she the only one playing the game right. It could catch up to her later on, but she's great at the power of persuasion. I do think she's wrong about Karishma, though.

monty924 said...

That's even more reason to get rid of her, Penny. I would, LOL

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi Penny, Yea about Missy I just think when a player gets a little too aggressive it usually comes back to haunt them.

monty924 said...

I think Rob and Sandra's little spy shack is fun :)))

The moleman said...

Missy would be ok i don't think Elaine or karishma are strong enough players to pull off a move like that!

Petals said...

Krishna could be saved to vote out later, but is there even a villian or a threat yet? Trim the fat...

monty924 said...

Blindside

Petals said...

YAY - I don't like a plain Jane pretending to be a vixen. Bye Go flirt with the cameraman

jennifer said...

Well then!

tbc said...

It should have been Karishma

jennifer said...

Thanks Jackie 🤗 have a great weekend and see y’all next week !!!

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you, Jackie. See everyone next week. Yes, it should have been Karishma.

tbc said...

Thanks Jackie!!
See everyone next week

Jackie said...

Thank you all for coming!

The moleman said...

Oh wow Chelsea pulled an andrea didn't see that one coming! I guess missys running things at that camp, but if they were going to break the alliance and wanted to win challenges it really should have been elaine!

monty924 said...

Got sidetracked. Thanks Jackie. Everyone have a great rest of the week and weekend.

Sharon N said...

OMG... just got around to watch the show tonight.
Noura is a total ding-bat.
Rob & Sandra were all but rolling their eyes. lol

The moleman said...

Noura not a good player she could have blown up kellees game or at least blackmailed her she didn't do either and is still the number 1 target missys got too much power we need a merge!

The moleman said...

It looks like a tribe swap or a merge next week hopefully elaine and karishma are on an opposite tribe of missy and we can see what shes got on her own!

Auntie Leigh said...

Noura really blew it six ways from Sunday. If she got info to help her tribe win the challenge, she did not need to sweat having or losing a vote. I still don't know who Missy is. My pool-guy Erin seems on sorta thin ice...that whole tribe is messing up and will be lucky to have a merge or change. It might have been fun to see a budding relationship too, but oh well...Didn't Rob look handsome back in the day when he angled for Amber to be watched out for? Rob thought of Amber before himself every time.

Auntie Leigh said...

Glemn Allen...there should not be much swelling from a root canal. Ice.

Terry is a Texan! said...

I have Tommy but I see he isnt listed did he leave???

The moleman said...

Yep but noura never had it to begin with her vote means nothing anyway. Hope to find out what missys got out on her own not with elaine and karishma and see if she can manipulate the others in the same way.Aaron could be in trouble with a swap but he may help his new tribe win immunity till the merge if they lose he better convince them they need him for more challenges!Chelsea says nothing was going on with her and dean not to say something wouldn't have developed i liked Chelsea she got a raw deal hopefully she comes back and pulls a sarah! Don't know about rob, but Amber looked hot!they were a great showmance! Was rooting for rupert but i was fine with amber winning all stars!

Jackie said...

Terry - He's still there. I had a copy/paste faux pas!
